4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2008 THe perfect medium-bright, golden cloudy color. Great sweet aroma and taste. Hints of lemon, banana, clove, spice, and white oak. This is one of the best hefes Iíve ever had. It has a sweet, dry citrus taste and is loaded with flavor. Itís moderately carbonated, and has little head. Itís pretty smooth, but that dry fizzyness develops on the backend. Finish is smooth, light malty wheat with that little bit of sourness you get with all Live Oak beers, probably due to their horizontal mash tanks. Thereís even a little bit of clumpy wheat particulate that made it through the tap when one gets to the bottom of the glass.

On tap at the Addison Saucer July 2005. My wife actually ordered this to celebrate the Saucers Texas $2.50 pints sunday special.
LOH pours a cloudy pale color with a tight, white head with brown specks in it. Very pungent smell of spices, cloves, and citrus fruits.Big bodied with bubbly carbonation. The strong taste follows the smell with sweet tart wheat malts and a nice mesh of spices and citrus flavors. The finish is crisp and clean.
A very easy drinking, and very tasty beer here. Hefeís donít get much better than this.

Terrible. Itís like a mix of scrotum and rotten fruit. I had to gargle kerosene to remove the taste. The mouthfeel, however, was world-class.

This was a very middle-of-the-road Hefe and not nearly as good as I was hoping. It almost appeard to be filtered and that certainly isnít good for a Hefe.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2008 Draft. Initial taste and smell werenít very delightful. Once lemon was added, it became drinkable - but that is not how I prefer to drink my beers. Not the worst beer Iíve tasted, but nothing to write home about.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2009 On tap. Pours a nice yellow/ light golden color with a small oily head. Nose is clove an banana but it is a very understated aroma. Taste is extremely well balanced and has nice light wheaty taste, that is rounded out by a lemon and sour finish. When lemon was added it brought out the taste even more which is rare for me to do but as an experiment I tried it and the flavor really blossoms.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 Yellowish cloudy gold color and smells very strongly of wheat, with some banana and clove, even more so than most hefeweizens. Taste is big and flavorful, bubble gummy, smooth and refreshing yet hearty and wheaty. For the style I can tell this is well done, very flavorful and a good beer all around. If you like the style, I think youíll love this one.
